A renewed thrust was placed on the company's core busi ness areas - airconditioning and refrigeration and the distribution of professional electronics equipment - and the company emerged a market leader in these focus areas. he nineties witnessed India entering an era of economic liberalisation and an upsurge in competition as the dynamic business scenario attracted the world's most forward-looking corporations. It was time to re-look at existing business competencies, re -engineer those that were obsolete and forge ahead in acquiring new business competencies. Blue Star was more than equal to the challenge and expansion continued unabated. In keeping with this focus, an advanced manufacturing facility was set up at adra in 99 , in technical collaboration with Rheem, SA, to enhance

manufacturing competency.

Research work

Blue Star has made significant progress towards minimizing and even eliminating the environmental hazards resulting from CFCs in certain refrigerants used for cooling. As a matter of fact, Blue Star is one of the few companies selected in India for funding by "The Multilateral Fund for the implementation of the MONTREAL PROTOCOL". Blue Star has already introduced 'ozone friendly' centrifugal chillers using HCFC-123, the safe refrigerant replacing CFC-11. Blue Star also markets absorption chillers which use water as refrigerant. All Blue Star reciprocating chillers already use HCFC-22 refrigerant which is more friendly to the environment than the older R-12. The Company actively promotes wider use of large refrigeration systems using ammonia as the refrigerant. In fact, Blue Star is a member of the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration, USA.

Water i

es f r system.

Water quality affects equipment and piping, causing scaling, corrosion, bacteria, algae and slime. These reduce the performance and life of the equipment and also increase the cost of maintenance. Traditionally, organi ations use harsh chemicals for treating water in cooling towers. These are again, ineffecti e, corrosi e and en ironmentally unfriendly. Blue Star, in association with Ecospec, Singapore has introduced the re olutionary

Bac omber water treatment systems. These are en ironment friendly, sa e water and enhance the life of the equipment. Using electromagnetic wa es, these systems not only decrease scale formation but also remove existing scale and arrest the

multiplication of bacteria by altering their DNA. There are three basic components in the Bac omber system: Electromagnetic Descaler Electromagnetic Magnetite enerator

opper - Silver Ioni ation Unit Most large organi ations across the world are switching to these environment-friendly and cost-efficient methods to ensure thorough cleaning of their cooling towers.

 Benefits of the Program


In retrospective, I can say that I benefited from the internship programme more than I thought Iwould say this in a number of ways:
o Career-wise, the internship programme undoubtedly enriched my

curriculumvitae CV). Also, having gotten a chance to interact with most staff, I have hadan insight on how to shape my career towards a humanitarian job in the near future. he internship programme gave me a chance not only to work with Blue Star but also a chance to learn from the best engineers and technical experts theworld could probably provide. his would reflect much onto my experience.
o Working with people from different parts of the world was a rare chance

that youcant easily get.Therefore to me this wasanother opportunity to make friends and share ideas.

To conclude, I can state that my internship at the Blue Star was a rewardingexperience and provided me with some new perspectives that I did not comeacross during my studies back at the college . I also have to stress that mycolleagues at the Blue Star contributed greatly to making my stay there a veryenjoyable one. Particularly, working together with all was a truepleasure and their faith in my abilities was a real source of motivation to date

 OBSERVATION AND CONCLUSION


Observations:
uring the One and half months, I realized that it takes many steps even in a smaller company)to achieve a vision. This was ascertained by a number of observations:

o I did observe that teamwork played quite a huge role in attaining most of

the Blue starwork. It was equally important to havethe ability to work independent.

ost of the Blue Star employees especially those within the Technical of course because I worked with them) are committed to their work. ost of them would come to work early, leave late in the evenin gs and a time come to work during the weekends in order for them to meet their deadlines. This is something that I feel few employees in any given organization would do.

Interns are given the much needed supervisory support that goes beyond work related issues. This is so given the fact that a supervisor would once in a while spend at least part of his/her private time to talk with an intern over issues that touches on personal life. This was very encouraging. Even with the aforementioned positive observat ions, honestly I think that Blue Star staff does need frequent common group activity/activities that would bring them together once in awhile. This will eventually result in a stronger bond amongst them. I did observe thatthe lack of these activities affec ts stronger teamwork play

Conclusion
I have to attest all of my supervisors at BL E STAR Ltd. for the goodjob. I really appreciate the way I have been guided through this internship programme with BL E STAR Ltd., beginning from the opportunity to take the time I needed to refresh and expand my knowledge in several issues concerning E VIOR E T, over a somehow protectedperiod where I could discover and learn to value my new working environment, andfinally earned the confidence to deal with assignments myself. It is through them that Idid enjoy my work everyday.
